Kansas City is on a fantastic offensive run over the last nine days posting a.301 BA, .359 OBP, .869 OPS while over the same span, Seattle has gone cold.236 BA, .322 OBP, .721 OPS. Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer and Jean Segura continued his hot hitting with four hits and drove in two for Seattle.
Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas, named Monday a contestant in the All-Star Game's Home Run Derby, crushed a Moore fastball off the Hit It Here Cafe window in right field, giving the Royals a 2-0 lead in the second. He's picked up wins in three of his last four starts after opening the year 0-6.
The Mariners scored their only run in the second inning, when a bases-loaded wild pitch by Kennedy allowed Kyle Seager to score from third base. But the M's couldn't add anymore, as Kennedy struck out both Mike Zunino and Boog Powell swinging at fastballs to strand two M's runners in scoring position.
In fact, Kennedy avoided further damage for the rest of his time on the mound, keeping the Mariners off-balance with a sharp curveball that helped him rack up seven strikeouts. The Mariners (41-43) managed just four hits, and three came from Danny Valencia.

Humans (sic)". "Yeah you both look quite similar and both of you are attractive in your own ways.Keep shining Nargis". She tweeted, "A man just said hi Katrina can I take a pic".
One batter later, Kennedy gave way to right-handed reliever Peter Moylan, summoned from the bullpen to face pinch-hitting Nelson Cruz.
Moylan, Neftali Feliz and Joakim Soria combined to retire the Mariners in order in the eighth and ninth innings.
The Royals' Whit Merrifield led off the game with a double, moved to third on a flyout to center and scored on Lorenzo Cain's shallow sacrifice fly to right field. James Paxton retired the first 16 betters he faced. He is the third Mariners pitcher to throw seven innings or more in his first two career games (joining Erik Hanson, from 1988, and Enrique Romo, from 1977).
